I appreciate your honesty there instead of continuing on context - glad I asked. Nah it's all here now in this thread. I'm over that one singular and dredged up from 2 years ago non-example that I've still apologized for.

-accused of something out of context for my normal patterns - just coming at a guy because I don't like a toy he likes? You guys can choose to believe I do that - but I don't.
-done in a thread that vanished because "oh IMJ was... protected"? By who? Certainly not f'n Voltron. And although I've never been at odds with Jester it's obvious that he's put off about the times I've had to galvanize myself against someone here. Jester has certainly never protected me on these boards. I don't have a problem with Jester, but don't make some mistake that I think he's ever been my ally - he hasn't.
-We find a complaint PM, but by association it must be me? I'm not named in this two year old "Post Report" though.

So look, I'll spell it out clearly - I'm not calling either one of you liars. But this is clearly a coordinated pushback that seems like "guilt by association" to me. There probably was a post of some kind. But I know how I think, I know what I do, and when I choose to do it - and I'd argue that Turo had his feelings hurt over nothing or that Turo said something somewhere that catalyzed whatever response he got from me.

What I do know is that in my entire life I don't think I could come up with even one example of myself literally bullying someone arbitrarily or being such a low-thought simp that I'd trash someone over something only because they "like something that I don't".

This fired shot from you guys in dredging up some two-year old, nothing burger post without real proof that I manhandled Turo in a blatant verbal assault. But I'll say it one last time - if I did something that hurt his feelings, I apologize for it. Now Turo - I've said it here several times. I said it authentically as well and I said it on good faith to whatever your now two-year old disdain for me is.

Honestly, that means a lot. It's all water under the bridge to me and we've both had civil discussions since, which I admit, was odd to me after that first exchange
Forget my last lines there, then. I just saw this. Right on.

The ONLY reason any of us really got into politics at all, was because it forced it's way into our material. Now, it's IMPOSSIBLE to get away from it by design.

The Drome didn't get ruined because we where into politics. the way politics forced itself into communities is where things get out of hand.
Thanks for this. I'm sure somewhere there was a cohort of lurkers just eatin' this $#!( up not even having the capacity to understand how a guy like myself and a guy like Turo could banter, carry this on for three pages and both of us remain with enough tact and authenticity to still come out unscathed. And that lurker capacity I mentioned is my point about who I've been pushing back on in this place when I do it.

Tim Pool is always inviting prominent leftists to his podcast so that they could express their own opinions on certain topics, and most of them end up chickening out. Of course, after receiving and rejecting the invitation, they continue to crap on him and call him a far-right bigot without any solid evidence to prove their statements.
